20 Description אב The concluding prayer for the Day of Atonement is enclosed by a portal surmounted by two side-turrets. Above the word, "father (God)," is a wheel surrounded by an eagle, lion, bull and a hybrid creature (probably an angel), suggesting the four creatures of Ezekiel's vision (Ezek. 1:5-15). The arch, decorated at the center top with a hybrid lion flanked by dragons, rests on two medallions which are set above capitals. The capitals enclose two jousting knights. The medallion on the left encloses a heraldic eagle with spread wings and the medallion on the right encloses a rampant lion. The pillars of the portal enclose hybrid dragons with human heads, which surmount two youths holding shields. The shield on the left encloses three stars and a bar on a purple-pink ground. The shield on the right encloses three crescent moons and a bar on green ground. The pillars rest on the open mouths of two yellow crouching lions whose tails are held by an ochre monkey. Blue fleur de lys decorate the capitals.
